How To Get Rid Of Birds In A Warehouse: Bird Netting and Your Other Options

Do you think you have a bird problem in your warehouse? 

If you think about it, the living conditions in a warehouse are pretty nice for birds. They will often sneak into your warehouse to seek food, shelter and water. 

Birds will have no worries about predators, wind which prevents nests from getting knocked down, and optimal climate conditions all year long. Although birds aren’t the most dangerous pests, they can create significant hazards for your building and staff.

If your business suffers from this problem, we’re here to help. In this article, we’re giving you advice on tackling this problem so you can remove birds from your warehouses.

What to Look For if You Suspect You Have a Bird Problem

The best way to detect bird problems is to look around your warehouse for clues. You most likely have bird problems if you see a decent amount of bird droppings. You’ll also find nesting materials, nests, and the birds themselves. 

You’ll specifically want to look around the beams and the framework of your warehouse. Those are the typical hotspots you’ll find birds nests.

Which Birds Are Causing the Problem?

Urban birds are usually the culprits that will give you significant problems. Their presence can contaminate goods and create a health hazard. Several different types of birds can cause problems in your warehouse, including: 

Pigeons

Pigeons can be a massive problem in a warehouse. They carry a vast range of bacteria and diseases such as ornithosis, salmonella. 

Histoplasmosis, cryptococcosis, and psittacosis can be found in pigeons’ droppings. This presents a significant health risk to your employees and contamination of your products, especially food.

Swallows

Swallows can be very detrimental to a warehouse facility. They create a lot of noise pollution and carry parasites like arthropod bird bugs and bird mites. These parasites can attack humans creating a significant health hazard. 

Symptoms of these parasites are severe itching, welts on the skin, and inflamed body areas. If you see swallows in your warehouse, they need to be dealt with immediately.

Mynas

The problem with Mynas is that they swoop down to attack anything that comes near their nesting site. 

Not only will they swoop into you, but they will also chase you as you try to get away. This presents hazards in your warehouse as your employees try to carry out their duties. 

Like most other urban birds, a Myna bird can contaminate property with its droppings, transmit disease and introduce parasites to other animals and humans.

Why You Need to Remove Birds and How To Do It

Solving your bird problem is necessary to continue producing in your warehouse and prevent health and safety hazards. These facilities are especially vulnerable to bird infestations.

  • Food Manufacturing
  • Furniture
  • Industrial factories
  • Storage warehouses

Lice infestations are also widespread from birds in your warehouse. The birds mentioned here can slow down your production, attack your workers, and contaminate your goods.

Let’s go over some viable solutions to get rid of birds from your production facilities.

Bird Netting

Installing bird netting is by far the best solution to a bird problem in a warehouse. 

It prevents birds from reaching the top of the rafters and setting up nests or giving them the ability to perch. This is also a long-term, inexpensive solution that won’t affect ventilation in your facility.

If you want to control your bird infestation problem, the best solution would be to have a professional install bird netting in your warehouse or facility.

Eliminate Troublesome Locations

You’ll need to eliminate any areas in your property that will attract birds. This means cleaning up any stagnant water, covering trash cans, moving eating areas, or getting rid of them altogether.

Take Care of Your Bird Problem Soon

The need to remove birds from your facility should be a top priority. These birds will cost you in production time and present urgent health hazards to your staff.

I was looking for a solution to evict the dozen pigeons roosting under my solar panels, they were making a constant mess including building a massive nest. I came across Forensic Pest control via their website and found dealing with the team a real pleasure, the team was punctual and efficient. Right from the start dealing with Janelle kept me up to date and then to Chris and the team, they are really professional and take their business seriously. Highly recommended.
